In 1794 with war raging between Britain and France, a traitorous organisation attempts to assassinate the King and start a French-style revolution in England. It fails, but the ringleader escapes, and Mr. Pitt at 10 Downing Street, wants him arrested quickly, for next time he might not fail. A secret operation to capture him is set up at Lady Drusilla Davanish’s Isle of Wight home, and then he betrays every British secret agent in Paris to the French revolutionary government. Drusilla is utterly distraught, for the man she loves is one of them. The next day she learns of a French conspiracy to seize Mr. Pitt. If they succeed it will be the greatest catastrophe in England’s history. She sets out to stop them, but will she succeed? And will the man she loves escape the guillotine?
